Joy News Journalist Reveals "Fresh Secrets" About Nana Addo's 30 Percent Salary Cut

During the weekend, the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo was trending after he reminded Ghanaians of how he has slashed or cut his salaries and the salaries of his appointees by 30 percent. Many people have reacted to it and today, a Joy News journalist, Kojo Yankson, has also reacted to it.

He brought the minds of Ghanaians to an issue about the salary cut.

"Yesterday, the President announced that he has reduced appointees’ salaries by 30 percent because of our hardship. What he did not say was that he is still paying their allowances, including their DSTV bills, spectacle allowance, the cost of medical care abroad, not to forget the thick bundles of dollars that are shoved into their hands every time they travel, all in the name of Per Diem.

"As for ex gratia, let’s not even touch on it. So when such a leader tells you he feels your hardship, do you trust him him?", Kojo Yankson explained.

Having made known this revelation, Ghanaians started to call on the President to also cut the other expenditures aside the salaries of his appointees.
